D&D House Rule -- Magic Nerf

Magic Changes

Minimum Spell Caster Level = 2x Spell Level.

Convert Spell Slots from Spell Level to Spell Caster Level. Remove all Cantrip and Orison spell slots since Cantrips and Orisons require a minimum Spell Caster Level of One.

Double the cost of meta-magic since meta-magic increase spell levels, not spell caster level, but do not double the meta-magic reducers.

This is similar to Epic-10 for magic, but characters are not limited to their hit-dice and derived statistics.

Limited to 5th Level Spells Pre-Epic.

Psionic Changes

Minimum Mental Level (and Power Points) = 2x Psionic Power Level.

Multiply the Spell Caster Level with the Number of Spell Slots in that Spell Caster Level to convert to Power Points.

Each First Level Spell Slot becomes 1 Power Point, ..., each Ninth Level Spell Slots become 9 Power Points.
  • Erudites are similar to Wizards. 
  • Psions are similar to Clerics.
  • Wilder are similar to Sorcerer.
  • Psychic Warriors are similar to Bards.
Limited to 5th Level Psionic Powers Pre-Epic.

This House Rule does not limit the mundane classes as much as the Epic-10 under the Epic-6 rules.
